  • Excellent for brainstorming.

    An excellent application for putting together maps for a variety of projects. I have used it for mapping out classes, course structures, and papers. Highly recommended, but like any other tool, it relies on the imagination to make full use of it. If I were to make one recommendation, it would be to make the iPad version more similar to the version one can get on the laptop or desktop.
  • Awesome App

    By James McCarty
    I’ve been using this app for years. It’s the the best tool I’ve found to help me organize my thoughts. I’ve used it to prepare speeches, write articles, plan out book ideas, etc. It makes everything so much easier for me.
  • Love. Love. Like

    By Justsmileok
    I love the app. It’s perfect for me. I’ve been using the app for a month and every time I wish it had a certain feature and look for it, it’s there. The only two things it doesn’t have is: 1. Ability to attach drawings via Apple Pencil and 2. iCloud backup I understand the Apple Pencil support, as this is just wishful thinking on my part, but I don’t get why it doesn’t have iCloud backup. That seems like a no brained to me. I’ll still give it 5 stars though.
  • Excellent if using on one device

    By JulieBOrigami
    Positives: Small learning curve; great study tool Negatives: I have the iPhone and iPad SimpleMind+ app. Poor syncing across devices! I.E. pics don’t show up when opening saved file.
  • Everything but

    By owndao
    I’ve been looking for an app for years that can support a named directed graph aka semantic network yet it seams that Apple will never get around to supporting more than hierarchical graphs and therefore leaving the developer to extend data views themselves. This app will allow one to fake a semantic net but then it will not function as such. Please, please either Apple or an app developer implement this. There is a full blown semantic database for the Mac called Neo4j that is just begging for the iPhone to act as a client. If anyone knows of such a beast please mention it here.

    Perfect App for mind maps. Use it extensively for my work as a clinical professional. Would be great if it also had a layer option.
  • Worst App Ever

    By Ajsjidje
    This application was a chore to figure out. Never have I ever had a more difficult time using a mind mapping software. Most other software will allow you at least the function the download it. Or make a link to your project, but this application had to make that even difficult. Worst of all copying and pasting was a cryptic and unnecessary chore that shouldn’t have been. I highly suggest anyone that is trying to find a good or even decent mind mapping software to look elsewhere because this application is not the one you are looking for.
  • Works Great with NextCloud!
